Divine Secrets Of the Ben Wa Sisterhood

This is a cover illustration for the current issue of the Sacramento News and Review. The topic is "Passion Parties", where women throw houseparties where sex toys and whatnot are sold. The Art Director wanted a woman looking in a box, presumably containing these sex toys, and having a shocked titillating expression.

The Art Director went with the lower right sketch, but wanted a girl behind each of her shoulders; one giggling, one shocked. The proportions of my sketch were off from the sizes of the cover so I had to add more of the woman's body in than I originally planned.

The Art Director thought it looked better with a tighter crop like in the sketch and I agree that it looks better. Although the cool pattern I made on the one woman's clothes doesn't get seen.
